10 Benefits of the SpaceJoist floor system
Below are 10 of the key benefits the system offers:
Long spans: Longer spans are achievable in comparison to solid timber.
This may eliminate the need for intermediate load bearing internal walls,
thus reducing a building’s overall cost.
Reduced wastage: Manufactured to size which eliminates site alterations saving time on site.
Design flexibility: SpaceJoists can be designed top hung to eliminate the rim board, decreasing the risk of timber shrinkage to improve air tightness.
Less timber and fewer webs: Tests show that the NEW SpaceJoist system requires less construction material - saving cost.
Sound performance: SpaceJoist delivers outstanding acoustic performance to comfortably pass English and Welsh regulations, even complying with the more stringent 43dB Scottish regs without additional insulation, plasterboard or resilient bars.
